The activity of the Holy Spirit (the fire) in the church (the fireplace) has been a source of controversy since Pentecost. In recent years, many changes have swirled around the charismatic renewal. Some branches have grown while others have declined. Some facets of the renewal have been accepted (and even adopted) by the broader church while others have grown more controversial.In addition, there has been the growing influence of the Vineyard Christian Fellowship, the Third Wave, the Kansas City prophets, and the prosperity teaching of the "health and wealth" movement. What do these groups stand for, and what questions do they raise?In this book, completely rewritten and updated for the nineties, Charles Hummel offers a unique historical perspective along with cogent analysis of the latest trends. Grounded in Scripture, he shows us where charismatic renewal has been, where it is now and where it is going.For anyone wanting an honest, full-orbed presentation of charismatic renewal today.
